1860 Colt Army 44, help with ID?
I recently purchased an 1860 Colt Army 44. I bought it along with a 2001 Pietta Remington 44, and don't have much invested in the Colt. The Colt looks old, authentic, great patina, and shows signs of a lot of use. Does not look abused, just old. The odd thing is that the Colt has absolutely no ID marks of any kind. No SN, proof mark, makers mark, point of origin, anything. Only the 1843 Naval scene on the cylinder, and the #32 on the cylinder post. The Colt looks sound and shoot able. There are no obvious signs that these marks have been removed as the finish is smooth and polished. I'll try to post a pic. ANY IDEAS?
